Our founding member Niall Maye has been involved in the many areas of the Bitcoin/Blockchain industry & community from 2012 and is considered a veteran, global expert & visionary of this transformative new industry.
As Northern Ireland members of the Bitcoin/Blockchain community & industry, we’re each tied to this network in our own way. We all have a shared interest in its success to keep our province up to date with the rest of the world as we progress through what world leaders at Davos described as the 4th Industrial Revolution.
BANI’s mission is to act as a main source for education, as well as promotion & protection of the Bitcoin protocol. An organizing body that coordinates and defends these interests in a professional, inclusive and transparent manner.
Our educational campaigns will ensure that citizens of N.Ireland have access to easily understandable, accurate and updated knowledge and information relating to Bitcoin, Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain applications. We seek to foster fair reporting and a positive public opinion of Bitcoin etc across N.Ireland by actively engaging with the media, colleges, businesses and the general public.
As an open-source project, Bitcoin, Cryptocurrencies and the Blockchain relies on a number of volunteers dedicated to constantly updating, maintaining, and improving the Bitcoin/Cryptocurrency protocol. We will encourage core development and protect the integrity of Bitcoin’s technological infrastructure. We will also be actively engaging with the members of the grassroots Bitcoin community here in their developing a Bitcoin related ecosystem with support and promotion.
